Very fun little knit with a drapey cowl. It comes with 3 sweater mods, and 12 video tutorials!! A great mix of fun techniques (cables and lace, short rows) with relaxing stockinette!
Why does your knit stitch look a certain way when it’s twisted? What do you do if you drop a stitch and need to fix it? With experience, and a bit of practice, you can figure out what caused each issue and how to fix it. But more importantly, if you want to master your knitting, there is no better way to do it than to learn to read your knitting and understand your stitches.
Stop trying to match the gauge exactly and learn how to knit a project to YOUR gauge. We’ll master the math of using your gauge, not just the pattern gauge. We’ll learn how to work with a different stitch gauge, and how to make adjustments to your pattern when your row gauge is off. Stop trying to match someone else’s gauge and discover the joys of making YOUR gauge work!

Patty Lyons is an excellent teacher and extremely knowledgeable about knitting. She loves to teach and wants every knitter to succeed. […] With this class, we will be able to take a pattern and turn it around to fit us, with all our marvelous curves. Anything, in any media and format, by this gem of a lady is well worth your time, effort, and money.
This class has given me so much information and confidence. I have loved every minute of it. […] Patty is an EXCELLENT teacher and gives you so many helpful hints. It is a must for anyone who wants to learn how to do cables and read patterns. Also, enroll in her class—Improve Your Knitting—because it too is very informative and will teach you many invaluable techniques.
Brain exploding with information – best teacher EVER. I’ve been a big fan of Patty Lyons for some time now. I have her two Craftsy classes and her Annie’s class. Recently she spoke at my guild and I bought two of her Interweave DVDs. Oh . . . my . . . god!!! I thought I was good at fixing mistakes, but I had NO idea how many tricks there were.
The class was a blast; watching demonstrations on a screen of Patty knitting made visibility so much easier as we could see the intricacies of creating each stitch. In addition she also helped each student individually with demos and explanations. I never had to worry if I was doing the technique wrong because she verified that each student fully understood before moving on.
Using as an example your perfectly fitting sweater, you reviewed and explained the critical necessity and steps involved in getting gauge, showing before and after photos of the same sweater with gauge off by just a stitch. . . Information was utterly practical, made so much sense, answered questions I didn’t even know I had. I still use my notes! Many, many handy tips.
This class is excellent!!! Worth every penny. I have been searching for some time now, to find out how to properly count which row I am on, when working cables and Patty has answered that for me. This simple answer was worth the entire price of the class. She also explains how to do the long-tail cast-on in pattern!! [...] Thank you for such a great class!!
